Nelson scored an even-strength goal while logging 16:58 of ice time in Sunday's 4-1 win over the Penguins. Nelson's second goal of the series came after he beat goaltender Matt Murray to the stick side on a shot that hit the post and went in. The 27-year-old has logged major minutes in the series so far, skating in 19:13 of ice time per game and three minutes of power-play time per game. More goals could be coming for Nelson, as evidenced by his 11 shots in three postseason games.
Nelson scored the Islanders' only goal in regulation and in the shootout in a 2-1 win over Florida on Thursday. Nelson played superhero -- there's no other way to put it. His 25 goals are one shy of his best ever, and his 53 points are a career mark. Prior to this season, Nelson's best was 45 points in 2016-17. He could be valuable in postseason pools and is riding a three-game, three-point mini streak night now.
Nelson scored his 24th goal of the season in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Coyotes. His wraparound goal gave the Isles a little breathing room in the third period. Nelson has three goals and six points in his last six games, pushing him to his first career 50-point campaign, and he's now two goals shy of tying the personal best he set in 2015-16 as well.
Nelson scored his 23rd goal of the season and added an assist in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Flyers. The 27-year-old center now has two goals and three helpers in the last five games, leaving him a single point shy of his first career 50-point campaign. Nelson was also a plus-3 on the afternoon, giving him a plus-20 rating that is by far a career high -- he was a combined minus-17 in five seasons coming into 2018-19.
Nelson scored in overtime and assisted on another goal in Sunday's 3-2 overtime win over the Wild. Nelson drew the second assist on Anders Lee's power-play goal in the middle frame, but the Islanders' forward wasn't done there, scoring his 22nd of the year in overtime to give New York its 42nd win of 2018-19. Nelson's 47 points are a new career high, and he still has 10 games remaining to pad his stats. Barring a major slump, the 27-year-old should eclipse 50 points for the first time in his career.
